Report: 49ers, DeForest Buckner ‘far apart’ on long-term contract

The San Francisco 49ers do not appear to be getting anywhere in contract talks with one of their star defensive players.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, the 49ers and defensive lineman DeForest Buckner are “far apart” in long-term contract talks.

Buckner is signed through 2020 after the 49ers picked up his fifth-year option in April. If he posts another season like he did in 2018, he will be underpaid, as he posted 12 sacks in 2018, doubling his previous career high in the process.
